In 1936, nine American rowers took on the Nazis in front of Hitler and 75,000 screaming Germans. The story of the greatest Olympic race you've never heard of.

Great story, Cal! The University of Washington's Husky Clippers had everything going against them, yet they put Hitler to shame! Maybe that was their inspiration. This story would make a great movie!

While Jesse Owen's 1936 distance run victory is my main focus - I ran distance and cross country in high school - the Washington regatta team also needs to be recognised for their part in proving that Aryans are no better than the rest of humanity, there is no 'master race', and that that syphilitic demented artist Schickelgruber/Hitler belonged in a mental institution, not a nation's leadership.
